Summary: I really think this is one of the best printers on the market. I bought mine when it was about 1/5 the cost of the present day model. The color definition is amazingly clear and true to life. I am always receiving positive comments on the beautiful color of the photos I print on it.
Summary: This printer does a terrific job with photos. I'm running my Epson Workforce 520 side by side with this one until the ink runs out then I'll probably use the Artisan 50 for everything. Just wish it had scanning capabilities, but then it probably wouldn't have the same quality for photos.
Summary: I bought my first Artisan 50 Epson printer almost five years ago. It gave me consistently photos the entire time. When it was worn out, I replaced it with an identical machine. I am impressed that Epson continues to produce this reliable printer for that long a time.
Summary: I have been looking for a replacement for an older photoprinter to print greeting cards that my wife paints and I shoot then print on medium weight card stock. I do this as well as print photos. The A50 is the answer and then some.
Summary: I've had my Ep Artisan 50 for 3.5 years now. I love the DVD/CD printing capability that delivers a pretty good professional like label for my wedding customers. What I find vexing, is the fickleness of operations. Once you get it set up, the printer is steady and reliable.
Summary: I've only had it a week or so and haven't had the time to play with it that I would like. Initial attempts to print brought mixed results. Some images were perfect others that were from my files were dreadful with harsh overdone chroma.
